Tips from the public help lead Madras authorities to charge two Madras residents with trespassing on the railroad tracks. Officers arrested two men, an 18 and 27 year old, who were seen riding in a red dune buggy near the train tracks. The two claim they had nothing to do with placing huge boulders on the tracks. Sheriff's Detective Starla Green says the investigation continues: “But at this point, we don't have enough evidence to determine who placed the rocks on the tracks. These individuals were on the property and that's why they received a trespass citation.” There have been two occasions in recent months of someone placing 200 to 300 pound boulders on the train tracks.
